Veggie Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
What a wonderful chili! Cheap to make too. =) I like to add some extra corn, as I love corn. I especially love the fact that this recipe is so versatile. If I am out of jalapenos, I just add some extra Tabasco and cayenne pepper. If I only have two, not three cans of beans, I can just add some extra veggies. And if some carnivores really want some meat, I will add a pound of ground turkey (healthier than ground beef). However, if you add meat to this chili, I would recommend adding more cayenne pepper and Tabasco sauce. It seems that when meat is added, it soaks up a lot of the heat, as it is not as spicy.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
This is a perfect carrot cake, although a bit sweet. I took away 1/4 cup brown sugar, and added 1/4 cup extra raisins so it would be a little sweeter. I also substituted the eggs with applesauce with baking soda and flaxseed egg substitute. Therefore, this recipe turned out vegan.

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
I used 1/3 cup of applesauce instead of margarine, used an 8 ounce package of fat free cream cheese, mashed 3 bananas, used 1/2 cup of applesauce with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda mixed in instead of 2 eggs. I also omitted the pecan mixture, and instead chopped up 1/2 cup of walnuts, and threw them in the banana bread mixture.

Cornbread I

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
I did not have buttermilk so I mixed 1 cup of skimmed milk with 1 T. of vinegar, and I also added 3/4 cup of flour. Like many others, I also only used 1/2 t. of salt. Then, I added about 1 T. of oil to the recipe, too. I did not let the shortening melt in the pan. I instead used a 9" cake pan, and greased that with oil. Then I poured the cornbread mixture. I did not mix the mixture with the oil on the pan. My cornbread was ready in about 20 minutes. Yum!

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
This pie had an out-of-this-world filling! Tart apples with that wonderful sauce. However, I noticed that my recipe for a 9 inch pie crust was not enough for this pie. 8 Granny Smith apples are a lot. I had to add an extra 1/2 of my pie crust recipe to my pie crust. Otherwise, this was perfect!

Spaetzle and Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
The best chicken spaetzle ever! Soooo delicious. My father likes the dumplings very hearty, so I added about the dough in 1/2 and added 1/4 to 1/3 a cup of extra flour. Very hearty, but more like dumplings than spaetzle. The dumplings that followed this recipe were yummy. Be sure to roll the dumplings into somewhat small balls. Grease your ice cream scoop, and the balls should be 1/2 the size. I made the mistake of using the whole ice cream scoop and they soon turned out like baseballs. This is also a somewhat time consuming soup, but the soup is still worth the effort.

Merwin's Shrimp Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
This did not have enough flavor. I used 6 cups of chicken broth, and used 1 pound of chicken breast, diced up, 1 pound of shrimp, a can of baby clams, a can of crab meat, and 1 pound of sausage. I also added 1 cup of chopped celery and used 1 cup of chopped green bell peppers (instead of 2/3). This gumbo definitely needs more flavor - think basil, a little more parsley, a LOT more cayenne pepper, etc.

Caramel Peanut Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
This was heavenly! I made this for Christmas for my family and they loved it! However, I will say that this is quite sweet, and if you do not have a good, strong sweet tooth, beware!

Peach Cobbler VI

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I did not like this recipe. My only dislikes were that the flavor of the cobbler wasn't varied enough (throw in some berries, then it will be fine) and that the crust was very soft and cakey. I prefer a flakier, biscuit-y crust. All in all, if you prefer a flaky crust, choose a different recipe.

Peach Berry Cobbler

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I added a little more flour to the crust to produce a more biscuit-y crust. I used 1/3 a cup instead of 1/2 a cup of sugar in the dough, too. For the fruit filling, I used 2 cups of peaches and 3 cups of berries. I added 1/4 cup plus 2 or 3 T. packed brown sugar. That way, the filling was perfect! Not too sweet and not too sour.

Marshmallow Crispie Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I doubled the recipe for a 9 by 13 pan. These bars are also great with 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or 1/2 cup of chopped M&Ms. Once, I used 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of coconut flavoring and added 1/2 cup of chopped flaked sweetened coconut. It was delicious!

Three Berry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
I used 1/4 cup of cornstarch and 5 cups of mixed berries (1 cup of strawberries, and the remaining four cups a mixture of blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries). Tangy, sweet, and delicious. It also tastes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
These pancakes are wonderful! Soft, fluffy, and light! I also added 1/4 cup of mixed berries and 2 T. of chopped walnuts to make Berry Walnut Pancakes once. Delicious!

Apple Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour the second time I made this, and it turned out fine. I also used an egg substitute (using 1/4 cup of applesauce + 1/4 t. baking soda for every "egg" substituted) the second time, and it also turned out fine. What made me give this recipe three stars was because it was sooooo dry! I would recommend adding 1/4 a cup of milk or soymilk to moisten it up and to make the mixing easier.

Grilled Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I very rarely like my mother's food, but when she made this, I loved it! The second time I made this, I served it over linguine with the sauce the user "Donna Jean" recommended. I also served a salad and garlic bread on the side. It was great!

Seafood Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
I added some squid and 1 pound of turkey sausage. I also substituted black pepper for the white pepper powder (a little carton of white pepper cost 4 bucks, while black pepper costs 69 cents. See my point?). I also served long grain white rice on top of this. It was great.
